This was a good contrast to the Avenues, traditional markets and goods plus a lot of fake goods. Lots of food and full of locals.

Souq Sharq constructed by the Gulf of Arabian Sea is a one of the first malls in Kuwait.

From the outside, its imposing and the architecture reminds me of classical greek building and the most striking piece inside this mall is the grand clock powered by water. Its luxurious in the eye as well since yachts are parked fashionably in front of the mall. Otherwise, the exterior looks grand but the mall itself is easy to navigate. Shops... More

Very handy (for my work) to have a quick bite to eat lunchtime with choices. Also the Sultan Centre is well stocked with speciality foods so handy for food shopping. Usually take a coffee overlooking the marina that offers a very pleasant vista. There is other shopping as well if that is one's need. Parking is usually not a problem,... More

Souk Sharq isn't as big as Avenues Mall but surely one can spend quiet time shopping and walking around. Lots of fast food restaurants as well as Sultan Center Shopping Mall is there for those who want to buy home stuffs. Overall: 5 Stars

With lots of new and large shopping malls popping up everywhere in Kuwait the last few years, it is easy to see Souk Sharq is neither. Nevertheless, Souq Sharq has a pleasant atmosphere and is located beautifully between the yacht harbour (marina) and the sea. Sultan Center, the large supermarket is really great..
